Question about Dell Inspiron E1705 Notebook
When charger is pluged up it beeps and theres no green light or any light at all. Is there a way to fix please help
If, when not plugged into the system, only the wall, the AC adapter LED doesn't come on and the adapter beeps, then it has failed and will require replecement. If the computer is still under warranty, the adapter is covered under the warranty.
If not covered under warranty, then buy a new AC adapter.
If the LED comes on when not plugged into the system, but goes out when connected to the portable, then the motherboard may be bad.

You are describing a classic wiring short circuit. Either the cables of your power supply or the jack on the laptop itself are damaged and need to be repaired or replaced as soon as possible to avoid permanent damage. There is no logical reason it would work only in certain outlets, that is probably just coincidental to the way you have the cable running while plugged in to each outlet.
Your power supply has two cables, the side leading to the AC outlet is removeable and easily replaced but the side leading to the laptop's jack is not. Start with the AC plug. Leaving everything from the 'brick' to the laptop in a stable position, gently flex the AC cable until you see evidence of the short (usually a break in the wire, possibly chewed by the dog or snagged on the edge of a desk). If so, replace the AC wire. If not, try the same with the laptop side of the brick. If so you usually should replace the entire power supply unless you are real handy with a soldering iron.
If moving the position of the two power supply cables doesn't identify the short, you must suspect the laptop's jack of being loose. This is worst of all because the laptop motherboard has to be removed to gain access to resolder the jack, a professional job that will run probably $100.
